Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Chaos (Boss)
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Pair
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
4"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
3-way
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Piezo
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Poly-Injection
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Butyl Rubber
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
225 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
115 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
90 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
100 - 18,000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Yes
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
1-11/16"
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.
Yes

No bass!!

September 18, 2013

Couldn't handle any bass, took out all the bass and used as a tweeter and put little mid through these speakers and was pleased. Don't buy if you intend to put bass through them you will be disappointed.

Used them for something else

July 12, 2012

I used them mounted in a wall behind a TV. When I hooked them up to the surround sound; they actually sounded fairly full and rich... Much better than expected. Samsung 24" TV's are known for their horrific sound. I just needed something to please my mom as the guest room is hers when she is here. So I mounted them behind the TV and taped the internal wiring on the TV to provide a simple solution to a horrific issue. I am very satisfied with them for that. That said; they might not perform as admirably in a vehicle and the piezo tweeter could definitely get harsh. I would say they are worth the money I dropped on them.

Awesome little speakers

January 5, 2012

These speakers are great value for money. I have a dual cab Hilux 4x4, and wanted something small and powerful enough for me. These fit flush up against the door trim and look great. I couldn't find 4" speakers in Australia for such great value and quality. I highly recommend these speakers! May I also add, the delivery time was quite reasonable.

great look

October 31, 2011

Purchased these speakers based on output and size, as they are installed in a small British sports car. Looks great. Not good judge of sound output, as I am still using the original am/fm radio in this car. I am sure with a proper deck that these will provide excellent sound/ good value for price.

Naaaa...not good at all!

January 6, 2011

I installed a pair of these speakers in my car, and I must say, they were cheap and they sound equally cheap, if not worse! But they're nice to look at before you install them...Forget about hooking them up directly to your existing wires...I had to *********** my wiring connectors to suit the speakers, and then when I turned on my stereo, I got really pissed...I couldn't get any decent volume out of them! I was hoping for much, much better performance! STAY CLEAR of these speakers...not worth it! Not worth it at all!

Update

April 27, 2010

Do not buy these speakers. They did not last for more than a couple of months, One speaker stopped working, and the other one, the lead wire that connects to the tweeter broke away from underneath the plastic housing connector. And now it is distorting.

Not bad for price

February 23, 2010

I have had these for a little over a month now and they are decent. I don't think they can really handle the RMS they are listed as because when I have it at a high volume they like to crap out and crackle. But cant complain they were 20 bucks. Would recommend for maybe a starter system on a very low budget. I would highly recommended buying from sonic though. I ordered these on a monday and they got to me friday, the same week. So thank you sonic electronix for the low prices and amazing shipping keep up the great work!!
